The Young WFPHA initiative provides networking opportunities, career development resources, and community engagement activities to students and young professionals between 18 and 40 years of age or within 10 years of their degree in public health.

We aim to build a globally strong and engaged community of students and young professionals who can support each other, grow together, and help with workforce capacity and skills building. We want to empower students and early-career public health professionals worldwide to advance public health through collaboration, education, and advocacy by promoting opportunities for leadership, networking, and skills-building, facilitating research projects, and aiding the exchange of knowledge and best practices across regions and disciplines.

This initiative is led by the Young WFPHA Working Group, which also organizes the International Students’ Meeting on Public Health (ISMOPH).
